Lol... I already live in a 2 car garage house with 3 cars... Of course, my first house will have at least a 3 car garage, and if I get a 4 car garage, the fourth one is for my tools n gadgets and my future family can't use the garage, unless they understand my passion for cars.

Re: 4AT or 5MT

Having your OWN house and living with your parents are completely different things. Also owning your own cars that you bought with your own money is much different than parents giving their kids cars for nothing.

When you start paying on a mortgage and utilities and 100% all your own bills your eyes will open to the very little possibilities haha.

Yeah I know that . That's why if I am gonna be using one car for a while (~10 years or so), might as well be something reliable and fun to drive, lol (even if it has a ****ty transmission).

Re: 4AT or 5MT

Not true. You can pick up everything for a manual swap for roughly the same price and it will last 100 times longer if you know how to even remotely drive stick lol

But it's not something you can swap in a weekend IF you don't know how to work on cars or don't have a tool set. He'll be paying someone to swap it (MT or AT). Sorry, just being honest.

Re: 4AT or 5MT

This is also true. Sometimes I forget that not everyone likes being abused by their car like I do
